Smaller Groups Better than Big?

10 groups of 40 members is better than 1 group of 400

Smaller groups are more intimate. Participation rates are higher. Activity levels increase. Messages resonate through friends, not through your organisation. It’s less work with better results.

Front Porch Forum is a network of relatively small online neighborhood forums, and our experience matches Richard’s trend above… lots of small groups are better than one big one, at least when your aim is to help neighbors connect and build local community.
